HC Deb 20 December 1967 vol 756 cc419-20W
102. Mr. Cronin

asked the Minister of Transport what steps he proposes to take to prevent vehicles driving on potentially dangerous tyres.

Mr Carmichael:

In addition to the Regulations on tyre condition laid before the House on 5th December, the proposals include tyre inspections in the annual tests and spot checks of good vehicles and private cars; a provision in the "plating" Regulations requiring goods vehicles to be fitted with tyres designed and maintained adequately to support the relevant maximum axle weights; and educational publicity.
